4 Reasons Why Oil Free Makeup Remover Wipes are Better for Your Skin
Remember those old cartoons where a character has a tough decision to make and a little angel pops up on one shoulder, and a devil pops up on the other? If you’re anything like us, you’ve had that exact same feeling when you know you should go through your makeup removal routine, but the warmy goodness of your bed is beckoning you. As much as we know that going to bed with a full face of makeup is never a good idea, going through the whole process can seem the equivalent of climbing Everest last thing at night. Thank goodness for oil free makeup remover wipes.
Even Kim Kardashian has admitted that she has gone to bed without removing her makeup, and since the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star’s life is at least 60 percent about makeup, that really says something. Perhaps someone should send Kim a pack of TAKE OFFZ oil free makeup remover wipes, because not only do they reduce your makeup removal time to a few seconds, they are actually good for your skin too.
Why are our oil free makeup remover wipes so good for your skin? The clue is in the last sentence: they’re oil free. Read on to find out why oil free makeup remover wipes are better for your skin than other alternatives.
1. Oil Can Lock in The Bacteria and Dead Skin Cells
Oily makeup products have earned a bad reputation, and there’s a very good reason why. The idea of removing makeup – especially before bed – is so your skin has a chance to dispel the bacteria, dead skin cells, sweat, and other nasties that have accumulated on your face during the day.
While an oily makeup remover may appear to do its job, in actuality it is creating a thin waterproof film that acts in a similar way to plastic. It appears smooth and clean on the surface, but that’s only because it has trapped the dead skin cells and other debris underneath.
Just when you thought your oily makeup remover solution was also removing the hidden nasties from your skin, it has actually been covering them over and trapping them against your pores all this time. Yuck! Oil free makeup remover wipes, thank goodness, do what all good makeup remover wipes should: they actually clean and nourish your skin at the same time as removing makeup.
2. All the Benefits of Hydration Without Greasy Residue
When we’re talking oil free makeup remover wipes, we’re really talking water-based. As such, they hydrate your skin, adding much-needed water back in after it has been removed from the sun, wind, and other elements experienced throughout the day.
For this reason, oil free makeup remover wipes are particularly preferred for people with naturally oily skin. The water-based solution will hydrate the skin as much as an oil-based mixture will, but without adding additional oil to already oily skin.
All the hydration and moisturizing benefits without that added oily feeling? Sounds good to us.
3. Oil Free Makeup Remover Wipes Won’t Cause Blackheads
We mentioned previously that oil-based makeup products have developed a bad reputation, and much of the reason is because of blackheads. It is commonly thought that oil-based products cause blackheads, and that’s because they do.
Since one of the most important reasons to remove your makeup at night is to let your skin breathe overnight without having makeup clog your pores, it makes sense to avoid an oil-based makeup remover that can clog your pores just as much as makeup can.
Oil free makeup remover wipes won’t clog your pores and cause blackheads like oil-based alternatives will.
4. Oil Can Increase UV Penetration
Did you know that certain oil-based makeup products can increase your exposure to UV radiation? It all comes down to the way some oils transmit light. It means that if you use an oil-based makeup remover and then step outside – perhaps in the morning before you’ve applied sunscreen or SPF makeup – your unprotected skin could receive even more damage from the sun’s rays than it normally would.
